Modular structure solutions provider Ark Prefab has delivered a camp to accommodate mineworkers at the Kush project, in Sudan, as part of a procurement, construction and commissioning of facilities package by a large Russian mining company.
In 2015, Ark Prefab began erecting the camp, based in the north of Kartoum, to provide full accommodation for the operation’s permanent on-site personnel.
The Kush camp consists of ten subblocks that comprise an office block, a VIP block, a two-person block with 16 rooms, a kitchen and a mess block and four-person blocks with 60 rooms.
All the blocks have been linked together with corridor units.
The camp features two VIP rooms which have exclusive sanitary rooms with water heaters.
Eight locker rooms, four storage rooms, four laundry rooms with 16 washing machines and five toilets, as well as five showers, form part of the ablution facilities of the camp.
The office block comprises the conference rooms, the managers’ offices and public offices. Ark Prefab also constructed a communications room that includes the fire-alarm control unit.
The company highlights that the sleeper block is powered by one of the two secondary-level general power panels installed for each sleeper block, with the office, kitchen and mess blocks having their own panels. In addition, one 300 ℓ water heater is fitted in each shower room, states the company.
Ark Prefab highlights that all the structures are incorporated with a pitched roofing system and a master antenna television and public address system.
Ark Prefab, which is based in Shanghai, China, currently has an annual prefabricated building production capacity of 75 000 m2.
